For more than a decade, the Saltwater Classic off-shore fishing tournament has been taking Florida’s East Coast by storm.
Fishermen from all over the country come to Port Canaveral to participate in the largest saltwater tournament in the entire state of Florida.
This off-shore fishing tournament is different than others on the East Coast because registration to compete is free. Yes, that’s right, free!
The winner receives numerous prizes, and thousands of dollars in cash. By the end of the Saltwater Classic fishing tournament, over $20,000 is given away!
This tournament is filled with adrenaline-pumping excitement and it’s something fishermen and onlookers won’t want to miss.
Besides the action-packed tournament, the Saltwater Classic also throws a Captain’s Party the night before the tournament.
In the most recent years, the Captain’s Party has been hosted in front of the new state-of-the-art Exploration Tower, in Port Canaveral.
Fishermen attendance at the Captain’s Party is mandatory in order to compete in the tournament, so fisherman, put on your party shoes and head on over to the Exploration Tower.
Let’s hope you caught something big because the final and official weigh-in takes place at Rusty’s Seafood. Good luck, fishermen!
